Michele Bachmann officially announced her candidacy for the presidency today in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.  She said in an interview that she wants voters to know that she has the spirit of John Wayne, who was from Waterloo. Commendable! The only problem: the American movie icon John Wayne is from Winterset, Iowa, not Waterloo; the John Wayne from Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer who dressed like a clown and brutally murdered and raped at least thirty-three boys and young men in the 1970s. I can see the bumper stickers now: Bachmann '12: Disemboweling the Status Quo and Burying It In A Crawl Space Beneath My Porch.

Have a picture of yourself from your twenty-first birthday party you would rather potential employers not see? Beware of Social Intelligence, a new company with powerful search tools that hunts down your humiliating pics, tweets, and blog posts and creates your social-media dossier for hiring managers. I knew I never should have gone to Mardi Gras…

Have you ever wished that your BBQ apron made you look like a fundamentalist militia member? Good news — you can now get a "tactical grilling apron," which is made with several different colors of camouflage print and includes holsters for your spices and sauces. Something tells me Dwight Schrute is going to show up at a barbecue with one of these babies in the near future.

The first official trailer for the newest Pixar flick Brave is out, and it looks awesome. The teaser premieres right before new Pixar film, Cars 2, as if to say, "I'm sorry you're about to watch Cars 2."

Speaking of terrible movies that came out recently: here are "101 Movies Retitled in the Model of Bad Teacher," a list of, well, 101 movies retitled as "adjective + noun." For some reason, Tragic Newspaper Magnate and Rebellious Scotsman just don't pack the same punch as the titles that were decided upon.
